What Is LinuC?

LinuC (Linux Professional Certification) is a certification series designed to evaluate the knowledge and skills of IT professionals. Planning and development of these exams is managed by LPI-Japan, an NPO, with support from major Japanese IT companies, professional development enterprises and industry publishers.
LinuC is an independently operated, vendor-neutral certification that certifies proper Linux knowledge and skills.
LinuC is a new Linux professional certification standard that began in March of 2018. However, this exam includes the same range of objectives as LPIC standards, allowing candidates to utilize previous study time and experience to smoothly complete their exams.
This certification series also includes study support through free and paid seminars, proactive measures against exam question leaks, and an online portal for candidates to review their results in detail. LinuC is designed to help candidates feel confident about the certification process so they can apply their skills freely.
